With Ireland’s missionary history and the resultant diaspora, Ireland’s education system should develop an inclusive religious vision to support the development of peaceful structures for a global future. Karen Armstrong won the 2008 prize for her talk to TED. She proposed an international Charter, to be compiled by representatives of all the major world religions in conjunction with the United Nations, based on The Golden Rule, that you do onto others as you would like done to you or, at least, do not treat others as you would not wish to be treated yourself. ‘Every single religion’ believes in this core rule, espoused by Confucius well before Christ.
